Abstract:

"Ben Wattenberg traces the emergence of the neo-conservative movement from the ashes of pre-radical liberalism of the early 1960s and Cold War thinkers such as Irving Kristol and Norman Podhoretz, to ideological giants Scoop Jackson and Pat Moynihan, to doctrine authors Jeane Kirkpatrick and Ronald Reagan. The author also discusses the proliferation of neo-con "think tanks," such as the American Enterprise Institute, as well as the surprising appearance of a neoconservative platform in George W. Bush's administration, in which a number of Wattenberg's proteges have played key roles."--Jacket.
